In the wake of the financial crisis, Great Recession and sluggish recovery, good federal policy can help rebuild the American economy and make it both more stable and equitable. Misguided policy could take the nation down a very different road. In an era of divided government and political brinksmanship, many sensible policies don't get the public airing they deserve.  Peter Orszag, will discuss the options facing economic policy makers with a focus on the potential impact of federal budget cuts.

The lecture is part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Social Science and Policy Forum’s spring series of events.   All programs are free and open to the public.  The full schedule is available at
